.SYNOPSIS...Another round of showers and thunderstorms are in
store for the area today. Showers and thunderstorms will begin to
decrease on Thursday but a threat will continue through the
weekend, mainly across eastern Nevada.

.SHORT TERM...Today through Friday. Upper low centered over
southern CA this morning will continue to provide abundant
moisture and instability for another round of showers and
thunderstorms, mainly during the afternoon and early evening
hours. By Thursday upper low will be moving eastward through AZ
with moisture mainly confined to eastern NV where isolated to
scattered showers and thunderstorms will once again fire up. A
drier northwest flow over the area Friday but still some lingering
moisture and instability over far eastern NV for a few showers and
thunderstorms. Daytime temperatures will continue below normal
with highs generally in the 60s, except rising into the mid 70s
Friday across portions of northern Nye county.

.LONG TERM...Friday night through Tuesday. Weak trough energy over
the Great Basin through the weekend...with best chances for shower
and thunderstorm activity being over East-Central Nevada during the
afternoon hours. Of the two weekend days...pops should be highest on
Sunday over generally White Pine County as GFS has lifted indicies
of -3. Temperatures will be near normal this weekend.

High pressure begins to build in from the southwest on Monday
kicking weak instability east toward Utah. Held on to slight chance
pops for eastern portions of the cwa on Monday however if the trend
of weak ridging continues expect pops to diminish for Monday.
Temperatures are expected to warm up to above normal levels early
next week as higher pressure builds into the region.

.AVIATION...VFR conditions with isolated showers across Northern and
Central Nevada early this morning. Instability increases late this
morning through the afternoon hours with isolated to scattered
thunderstorm activity. By early evening the airmass begins to
stabilize across Northwestern Nevada...with lingering showers and
thunderstorms over Central and Northeastern Nevada.
